CS2 had a decent content update and added in my favorite match type besides deathmatch, arms race.

Also upgraded the Zeus to make it rechargeable instead of disposable (don't care) and did a bunch of patches. Plus new skins and stickers (also don't care).

The two "new" maps for arms race are pretty good but I wish they were available in death match too.

Overall I am enjoying the update.

Tried out this game called Combat Master.

It's basically a low budget version of COD only free, low spec friendly, and takes less than 2 gigs hard-drive space.
I am legitimately having a lot of fun with it. I normally play mainly tactical shooters but I forgot how fun more casual arcady shooters like COD are.
Not even close to perfect but since its free, works, and the core gameplay is solid I am happy recomending it.

It's more fun than any mobile game I have playedor seen.
Controls work good on pc.

The devs made it to function well on low spec pc for the internal market. So it probably influenced the looks since mobile games use the same tricks to run on phones.

Hell, my only complaint so far is that the payed skins are ugly compared to the ones you get by grinding for them with weapon xp for free by just playing the game with a weapon you already like.

Oh and so far their are only two kill streak rewards and no mini map. So no radar or uav. Just minigun and nuke.

I'm playing Dragon's Crown with my brother and it's funny how they managed to get what is essentially a simple arcade with arcade gameplay and make it incredibly convoluted with unnecessary plot, side characters, a map and leveling up different skills and whatnot. It feels too much for what it boils down to being a beat'em up, despite all the game's effort to hide that fact. It hurts the pacing a lot imo but it's still an OK experience. Artwork is incredibly ugly though, everyone look rather hideous.

wizards of the coast is in free fall and hasbro is seriouslly trying to find someone to sell them off to.
They have fucked up nearly every project they have been involved with for the past few years because they went full DEI, SJW bullshit and fired everyone competent because they were white and male.

I predict their attempt to turn pokemon tcg into a microtrasaction hell like they have been trying to turn dnd and mtg into digital products will fail and fail hard.

Apparently all my cards are old and I haven't looked closely at the "newer" cards because its been 21 years since they printed a card set for pokemon and they were dropped as a licensee not long after.

Legends arceus was the only mainline pokemon game I played since sun and moon, and it was alot of fun. I'm excited for this too.
It's cool that they're revisiting older generations and doing new stuff with them outside of just remakes (Reminds me that people are still asking for gen 5 remakes for some reason, as if those games even need to be remade). And Kalos is definitely a region that deserves to be explored more.

Still no new PMD game, though. That's disappointing.

Not him but I enjoyed those games as a kid largely just because it was "platforming, but you can fly"… I was a sucker for that.

Neverwinter Nights has just about infinite content considering how long it's been out. There are a ton of user-made campaigns and servers for that game. The servers often called "persostemt worlds" or PWs are basically small MMORPGs. I played a mod based on an original adventure by Gary Gygax "The Keep on the Borderlands", which I think is pretty fun for giving a new character a test run. Also the character building is very in-deprh since it's based on 3e rules.

Pre-rendered backgrounds with 3D assets should've remained until at least the 2010s for certain genres. I'm pretty sure much of the love for the golden age of Final Fantasy (VII- IX) and the early Resident Evil games is due to the highly detailed nature of pre-rendered graphics. The worlds depicted felt more alive and lived in, meaning kids could imagine themselves in it more easily.

It's just a factor that nobody really picks up on when discussing these games. I remember my Grandma watching me play through the Winhill sequence in Final Fantasy VIII and going on about how beautiful the village looked. I don't think you could've had anything comparable in detail in full 3D for at least fifteen years, and not anything as consistently pretty over the course of a full game until around today.

Final Fantasy X was sort of a graphical step down in a sense of so much being plain, flat and ugly. So much so that when you step into a pre-rendered background house, you're taken back by how detailed that is compared to the ugly flatness of the outside.

I think the reason they died out was sort of sloppy mapping, and that developers wanted to the flex the capabilities of the console's hardware and their own skills. They really are better than anything in-engine, when people talk of graphics they care about how good it looks when you're playing the game but in terms of fidelity and detail they peaked in the 6th generation with how the game looked in cutscenes, lighting, texturing, and final touches. The FMVs in Stalker were a good example of a linear progression of technology that still had playback issues but was getting better and more natural-looking by the year. I hope this is understandable.

Then in the 7th generation everything started to look like sticky claymation and physics while actually physics-based now instead of being individually scripted weren't at the level of technology necessary, everyone was rightfully excited for new tech and rendering methods but it felt premature compared to the prior progression of 3D graphics even if the lighting and particles were more sophisticated. I'm not a programmer so maybe it was something to do with consoles' components resembling PCs more now than the proprietary designs of the 5th and 6th generations with new technologies made for them that didn't require the sophistication of the prior gen to make models and maps, or middleware that was prioritizing realism over detail. Graphics have gotten worse now due to video game developers being mediocre college grads whose games are as primitive as tech demos so it's just been an exponential decay since then, a shitty game ten years ago was trite and derivative with DLC and optimization issues, I don't know the range of how bad it is now.

because modern players would complain about not being able to move the camera around, I've seen many people saying old resident evil games are "unplayable" because of fixed camera angles
>And why did the point & click genre die out?
they just fell out of fashion, the point and click public moved on to other stuff like walking simulators

I finished Tyrion Cuthbert. Its an ace attorney like indie game.

Ehh, its nice that somebody tries making more games like these. The first case was a standard tutorial case that can almost be skipped because I've played every single mystery murder game there is nothing tutorial case does nothing for me at this point

2nd case was surprisingly good. 3rd was awful and retreads too much of 2nd case. Could have been skipped in hindsight

4 was fantastic. Really entertaining and kept you guessing with the culprit too

Then the final case falls flat on its face and has stupid twists.

Ace attorney game have this unique pacing. They can be a bit too slow but its all part of the charm. Every character is larger than life. Odd contrast to have this game where the judge calls in a witness then they just have a 10 minute statement and theyre out of the game.

Sry for my retarded english, I'm not good conveying my thoughts plus not a native speaker

If you like Ace attorney games I would advice you to play cases 2,3 and 5. Its not a long game (12 hour all cases) But you dont gain anything from cases 1 and 3.

Finished nocturne, I had finished it before but I had never gotten the "True Demon" ending.
It's as good as I remembered it, full of bullshit deaths too, every battle is a coin toss pretty much, if you get bad rng you're toast, especially at the beginning of the game, I wouldn't have it any other way. Last boss took me a few tries until I got lucky enough to beat him with him casting some bullshit spell that one shot my main character.

I want to play pirated games but don't want to infect my computer with virus.
So I am thinking of dual Booting windows
So that I can run games on one partion and use another partition for serious work
In case if the gaming partition get infected with malware I can simply reset that partition.
Will this work correctly??

Nobody knows, I wouldn't put my money on them being a female, cracker empress (popular for being the one cracker who can crack denuvo games) was recently said to be some fat polish dude, which is not 100% proven but very likely to be true.
Them pretending to be a female is probably just a ploy to get more donations from desperate idiots and maybe make investigations harder, which I doubt would work but they may think it does.

Anybody play Fire Emblem? What are your thoughts about Fire Emblem Engage? Personally, i'm excited for it. We haven't really got a fire emblem game before that looks this colourful, and the entire premise just seems like it could be stupid fun even if the stories bad. It also seems like they're returning to more traditional gameplay ie bringing back the weapon triangle/a jaigen character and the maps looks like they could possibly have much tighter design than three houses. But who knows. Honestly who cares if the game ends up being bad, i'll probably still get some enjoyment out of it and we know that a genealogy remake is coming because of the leaks so it's not like the series is dead if this game sucks.

Also, what are your favourite FE games? Personally, my top 5 would be Radiant Dawn > Conquest > Genealogy > Path of Radiance > Three houses.

Picked up Radiant Dawn with the intention of completing it this time, I had a save file with a bunch of characters with capped stats from the prequel including Sothe, Jill, Zihark and Nephenee so it made a big difference in those early chapters where they are the only remotely useful units. Illyana is unsalvageable though.
It's not as bad as I remembered, definitely a mixed bag but still a fun game overall. Most of part 2 is crap and so is every chapter with the paladins and Marcia. The ones with a billion non-playable units you cannot give orders to are very tedious, it always makes me wonder how anyone in the development team could sit through these parts and not be frustrated and think they should tone it down a bit.

I'm about to start the final chapter(s) I hope it's good and not some cheap gimmicky bs.
